5.0 out of 5 stars Worked wonders for us. Repetition is key!, 15 Oct. 2012

This review is from: Effective Birth Preparation (Hospital or Birth Centre): Self Hypnosis (Natal Hypnotherapy Programme) (Audio CD)
What a great excuse it was to put my feet up everyday and relax for 40 minutes! I used this CD on my lunch break everyday at work, and as I worked right up to the due date, it was a godsend to be able to retreat into my own little bubble everyday. I would come out of it feeling refreshed, content, and really connected to my bump and baby - excited about the birth ahead!

It was only when I was in labour that the full benefits were visible. Within a few minutes of this CD being on, my body and mind were so used to listening to this and feeling relaxed, that during the birth, my husband said my whole body would literally go soft as soon as it came on. The 3,2,1 relax was the biggest tool we used from this cd, and also the time distortion - my contractions really did feel shorter than they actually were, and the time in between each one did feel long enough for me to re-energise and be ready for the next wave! I also have this memory when I was breathing the baby out - it just didn't hurt like I was expecting.....it was like "putty" as Maggie put it. Amazing!

I still listen to this now from time to time with my baby - the familiar voice helps us unwind, and it's a nice treat to go back to my special places during the visualisation.

My advice is to stick with it - make it part of your routine during your pregnancy, and you will see and feel the benefits for you and your baby. The mind is a powerful thing - and the body is an amazing machine. I don't think we give it enough credit.
